confused Transmission Question

Hey Guys:

I'm in need of a new tranny for my 2000 Ranger with 3L engine. There's a guy around town who has a transmission from a 2000 4L Ranger (Mazda B4000) Automatic Transmission.


He wants $400 cash for it.


How hard is it to put in my 3L, will it even work? Do I need to change anything for it to work?

This is going to cost me substantially less then having mine rebuilt...

Re: Transmission Question

The 4.0 used a 4R55E and the 3.0 used the 4R44E. If I'm not mistaken, the 55E is a heavier version of the 44E. You m have to do a bell housing swap.ight

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?

So.... Im not sure what to do.

Re: Transmission Question

They are computer controlled so that could cause improper shifting.

Ok, so I could be mistaken.
